A newcomer to HEMLOCK GROVE, Madeline Brewer portrays Miranda Cates, a girl just passing through that gets inexplicably involved in the deepest mysteries hovering over the town. One would think that Miranda would just be an innocent bystander that gets in over her head, but as the series goes on, everyone will start to see that perhaps Miranda is someone who has brought a little bit of trouble with her. So do not let her carefully constructed facade fool you. She has a much bigger part to play than any of them expected.

In a press interview from the set, Madeline Brewer talked about who Miranda is, what role she has to play and just what is up with all those amazing tattoos all across her body. [Read more…]

HEMLOCK GROVE Scoop: Landon Liboiron Talks The Season 2 Conflict Between Peter and Roman

hemlock-grove-landon-liboiron

It was always too good to be true. Can a werewolf and a vampire ever really be friends? Yet HEMLOCK GROVE had the audacity to propose that they could. Season 1 introduced Peter Romancek (Landon Liboiron), a gypsy werewolf, who had just moved to the seemingly sleepy town of Hemlock Grove where the Godfrey family control the town through their obscene wealth and their desire to keep a distance from the townsfolk. But the Godfrey’s had many secrets to conceal, only one of which was that its matriarch Olivia Godfrey (Famke Janssen) was an upir. Her son Roman (Bill Skarsgard) had not yet transformed and was unaware of his bloody ancestry, but was inexplicably drawn to Peter. Roman perhaps sensed, as Peter sensed about Roman, that there was an otherworld quality to Peter.

So Season 1 was a dance of mutual interest and aligned interests as Peter and Roman struck up a friendship and set out to track down a beast attacking the residents of Hemlock Grove. But Season 1 ended in a bloody and deadly finale as the beast was killed and Roman’s cousin, Letha (Penelope Mitchell) died as well. Both Peter and Roman were tormented by the secrets uncovered and the deaths that surrounded them. It pushed Peter to leave town and Roman to finally confront his mother about their darkest nature.

In a press interview from the set, star Landon Liboiron talked about why Peter returns to Hemlock Grove and whether or not there is hope that Peter and Roman could ever be friends again. [Read more…]

Year in Review: Top 10 TV Shows of 2013

Like each year before, it is excruciatingly difficult picking out a Top 10 list of TV shows. In fact, it seemed that television critics everywhere found creative ways to go around the traditional Top 10 list. They broke down TV shows by categories: best new shows, best returning shows, best comedies, best dramas, best cable, best broadcast, or any other way they could carve out the television pie into smaller pieces. Then some just gave in and posted lists of their Top 20 or Top 30 shows of the year.

For 2013, the only downside to too much great TV is that a Top 10 list is virtually impossible to come up with.

So in trying to come up with our Top 10 lists at TheTVaddict.com, we allowed each of the contributing staff the opportunity to come up with their own “Top TV” list this year. It seemed only fair since everyone has such diverse taste and criteria as to what makes it into their “Top” lists. [Read more…]

Over a Decade Later: FIREFLY Return Rumors Still Flying

Those who like FIREFLY tend to light up whenever it is mentioned.

In fact, you could make the argument that all of creator Joss Whedon’s shows have a distinct type of cult following that will fervently fight for the right to high quality sci-fi viewing. (Yes, even in the case of the somewhat disastrous DOLLHOUSE.) So it hasn’t been surprising to continually hear of the possibility of FIREFLY returning to a television reality after its untimely cancellation in 2002.

For those unfamiliar, FIREFLY takes place after a galactic civil war in the future. The show largely documents an endearing cast of characters who make their living as mercenaries as they fly around the outskirts of the solar system.

Even after the public managed to squeeze a full-length movie from Whedon in the form of Serenity, speculation about a possible return to primetime is still rampant online, and not just from fans. [Read more…]

Inside HEMLOCK GROVE: Scoop from stars Dougray Scott, Famke Janssen, Aaron Douglas and Kandyse McClure


 
Creating a horror television show is a tricky feat. It requires balancing the right amount of shock-and-gore along with compelling characters to keep fans clamoring for more – and Netflix’s HEMLOCK GROVE delivers on both.  Helmed by horror master Eli Roth and based on the terrifying world created in Brian McGreevly’s book, HEMLOCK GROVE weaves together characters that raise the hair on the back of your neck yet draw you in deeper and deeper into a supernatural mystery story.
 
When a young teenage girl is found mauled to death, fear and suspicions abound as a gypsy boy (Landon Liboiron) is rumored to be a werewolf.  Peter and his mother (Lili Taylor) had recently moved to Hemlock Grove in hopes of settling there after his uncle’s death; but their heritage makes them unwelcome in a community that seeks to keep its deep, dark secrets buried.  Reigning over the town is the ultra rich Godfrey family, who prey on the unsuspecting populace.  Everyone feels a slight unease with the Godfrey family, who despite their glamor remain aloof; not to mention they own a medical facility that is thought to house untold scientific experiments.
 
Just who or what is stalking their youth, and how do the Godfreys and the gypsies figure into the lurking sense of unnaturalness surrounding them, those are the mysteries that slowly unfold throughout the 13-episode horror series. 
 
During press interviews at WonderCon in Anaheim, stars Dougray Scott, Famke Janssen, Aaron Douglas, and Kandyse McClure provided some insight into murder, mystery and intrigue that layer HEMLOCK GROVE. [Read more…]
